Misidentified CD

The first time I tried to play my Rage Against The Machine "The Battle of Los Angeles" CD, Winamp identified it as Annie Lennox "A Christmas Cornucopia."

I tried ejecting and re-inserting the CD.
I tried playing a different CD, then putting the mis-identified one back in.
I tried shutting down Winamp and restarting it.
I tried rebooting the computer.
No matter what I do, Winamp continues to list the wrong artist, album, and track information.

Just to be clear, I have not ripped the CD. Winamp is identifying the CD itself incorrectly.

How do I fix this?

Try this...

1. Right click on one of the playlist items or on the title crawl in the main/player window
2. Select 'View file info'
3. Click the 'MusicID' tab
4. Click the Lookup button.

If I remember correctly, if the CD database encounters more than one title for the same CD-ID, it will ask you which CD title to use.

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.
